Helping teens cope with mental health issues
About Space Bubble
Space Bubble was created by Emily, aged 17 from Bridgewater and Taunton College in England.
The app helps to keep your mental health on track with activities tailored for just you.
How did you come up with the idea for Space Bubble?
I came up with the idea of my product as mental health is very important to me and I feel like it doesn't get recognised as much as it should and so many people are suffering in silence.
How did you go about developing the solution?
I thought that something that everyone has like a smart phone can be accessed easily so I thought an app would be the best option. I did a lot of product research along side and talking to teens currently suffering with mental health.
How does Space Bubble work?
My product will be free , easy to assess and interactive to help teens cope with everyday struggles. Within the app there are different features that are specific to different types of coping methods.
Why should your product win its category and why should people vote for you in the People’s Choice Award?
I believe when it comes to mental health it's hard to speak your mind and explain how you are really feeling and then you end up not saying anything to help yourself. Even though it's just an app I believe that a tiny app can even make a difference for someones health to get better as all lives matter. Yes there are many mental health apps already out there but suffering from mental health myself they don't seem to help me. So I wanted to develop an app coming from someone who experiences mental health everyday to try and help others to get better.
